Allergy Alert on Undeclared Milk in Pancakes

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services received information regarding a recall for the American Waffle Company of Clayton, Delaware is voluntarily recalling 480 cases of Gluten Free Blueberry Pancakes with Best By or Sell By 07/31/15 because the product contains undeclared milk. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk may be at risk of serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

The recalled 14.4 oz. LiveGfree Gluten Free Blueberry Pancakes were distributed in Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas, West Virginia and Wisconsin and sold in ALDI stores in these states. The product comes in 14.4 oz. box and marked with "Best By" or "Sell By 07/31/15" on the top or bottom display panel.

The voluntary recall was initiated after it was discovered that the milk-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not declare the presence of milk. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the Company's production process. Consumers who have purchased these LiveGfree Gluten Free Blueberry Pancakes and consumers who have product affected by this voluntary recall should discard it immediately, or return it to their local ALDI store for a full refund.
